This workout was done in Scottsdale, Arizona at the Cerulean Gym. This gym is unique as it uses the technique of altitude training. This is where athletes take advantage of higher altitudes to gain a competitive edge due to the decreased pressure in oxygen. This induces hypoxia, a physiological response that causes the body to increase the production of erythropoietin, a hormone that produces red blood cells. When you increase your red blood cell production, the result can be improved endurance, increased caloric expenditure, and a quicker recovery time.

When you with this altitude technique with HIIT workouts, you get even better results as you burn more calories (1.7X) and more fat.

This is a great workout that you can take with you to the gym, or even do at home as it only uses your own body weight. But as great as this workout is, you want to make sure you are mixing it up rather than continuously doing the same routine.  For more great workouts be sure to check out HIIT MAX™, one of the most effective workout programs and is responsible for hundreds of thousands of people finally reaching their goals.
